I learnt Yorkshire as a cycling paradise from the indoor cycling game “zwift”, and I am looking for a “real” cycling experience in Yorkshire. Charles was extremely helpful in finding a suitable size road bike for me, listening to my expectations, suggesting routes and providing GPX files ahead. Grateful to have Charles’s 1-to-1 support in two days rides, leading the directions and visited a local cyclist café at Harrogate. The views of Yorkshire are absolutely stunning, the weather was perfect for cycling. I was longing for cycling on the 2019 UCI World Harrogate Circuit (also one of the route in zwift), I finally made this dream came true. The accommodation was also excellent. I stayed at One Tivoli Place for two nights. The guest house was a lovely and tidy one. The delicious Japanese breakfast is the most memorable one. The overall experience and trip arrangement is perfect. Must have to recommend to my friends in Hong Kong. Wish to coming back again in summer and seeing the “purple carpet” in the moorland.

I discovered Yorkshire Velo on the web when looking for a multi day UK cycling holiday. After an initial enquiry via the webform, Charles contacted me a couple of hours later to discuss options. Charles was excellent throughout, he listened to what I was looking to achieve and gave me some initial ideas factoring in my daily mileage requirements and the signature climbs I was looking to tackle. Once we agreed to proceed Charles provided an excellent itinerary for my 3 (and a bit) day adventure, with comfortable bike friendly accommodation, hearty breakfasts and superb food/coffee shop recommendations. Charles met me upon arrival at the Wheatley Arms and checked I had everything I needed for my trip. He took my bags (which he transported to my accommodation in Hawes) and provided an excellent map to supplement the gpx files he had sent me beforehand. We communicated each day by text and Charles met me again on the final day to make sure everything had gone smoothly which it had. Each day in the Dales was a real challenge (as I requested). I cycled 230 miles with 25,000 ft of climbing including the Malham Cove Road, Buttertubs Pass, Tan Hill, Fleet Moss and Kidstones. I was blessed with superb weather throughout but be prepared as the conditions at 2,000 ft (Fleet Moss/Tan Hill) are noticeably different from the valleys. Grippy roads, challenging (sometimes brutal) climbs, proper beer and Northern folk makes the Yorkshire Dales a cyclist’s paradise. I will definitely be back and will look no further than Yorkshire Velo to plan my trip.

Discovered Yorkshire Velo on the internet when looking for options to cycle 3 days in the Yorkshire Dales. The experience from initial contact to the end was 5 stars :). Charles was extremely helpful, listening to our desires, offering options and arranging a 3 day adventure in the Dales based out of Ilkley. The routes provided were varied, (although, no surprise always with hills) , allowing us to explore different areas near to Ilkley (North, East & West). Each route had its own charms. We were based in the Wheatley Arms hotel, which was very comfortable and provided a very hearty breakfast to fuel you up for the day. Charles met us on arrival, providing a map of the area and was very supportive in reviewing the routes and checking all was good. He also provided recommendations on where we could eat in the evening. He had covered all the bases to provide a magic cycling break. We would be very happy to return to the Dales to cycle and asking for Charles to arrange our trip. Cheers

Yorkshire Velo put together a wonderful short break for my son and me and Charles provided lots of extra information to help make our ride thoroughly enjoyable. The overnight stays were in very comfortable pubs, hotels and bed & breakfast establishments. Each morning Charles gave us a proper overview of the route and advised on potential food stops. We'll be returning next year. Highly recommended.

Really excellent trip - the route was tailored to our specific travel arrangements ( two full days and two half days) and the distances each day were spot on. Amazing scenery throughout with the option to take in some of the famous climbs en route. Having the luggage moved for us was also a real treat. The only slight downside was the ride into Harrogate which was busy, but maybe we had been spoiled by the lack of traffic on the rest of the route.
